EMV Cards

Credit and debit cards using chip technology are becoming the security standard in the U.S.

Chip technology (also known as EMV) offers another layer of security when used at a chip-reading terminal, because it generates a unique, one-time code that’s needed for each transaction to be approved. This provides better protection against counterfeit fraud. Over 130 countries around the world use chip technology – including Canada, Mexico, and the United Kingdom – so you'll also enjoy greater acceptance when traveling internationally.
